A regional lender engaged The McEnery Company to provide an AS IS and Prospective Market Value conclusion for a now complete renovation to the Hampton Inn on Carondelet Street in Downtown New Orleans. At the time of our appraisal, the property was a 187 room Hampton Inn flagged limited service hotel housed within a 170,957 square foot, fourteen-story historic building located in the heart of the New Orleans Central Business District. The building was originally constructed as an office building in 1903 and was converted to the hotel in 1994. Our scope of work included the prospective valuation of proposed renovations resulting in the conversion of the current Hampton Inn to a Hampton Inn and Suites; and analysis also required duly aligned capitalization of net income sourced to ground floor 3rd party tenant suites include a Jos.
